After an absence of five days, my wonderful husband has returned home. I didn't cope as well as some years, so he returned to a slightly messy house, but we're all still alive and well. The kids did reasonably well, as did I. A good friend of mine dropped in for a visit for lunch. We enjoyed shawarma and a good, although interrupted conversation. I was definitely encouraged by her visit and it made a long day shorter.
Next up, a meeting with the elders tomorrow. Prayer is always appreciated!
I am so glad to have Steve back!
